Let me start with the bad news: Huzzah 2021 as you know it has been canceled. It was a difficult decision but after discussions with the hotel and taking into consideration lingering restrictions, we had to make a call. It would have been difficult to keep planning and decide on short notice. Game Masters and Vendors alike need time to plan and we wanted to be respectful of their time.
BUT! Huzzah 2022 is going forward with a tentative date of 11-13 May 2022, so mark your calendars, sit back and wait for more info to come. Please do not contact the hotel yet as we are still in the planning phase and booking blocks are not set up yet.
I can see you are very disappointed now, having a convention in 2022 is doing nothing when you grave a nice game, the exchanges with other gamers and friends. We therefore decided to roll with the following ideas for 2021:
- Huzzah will go virtual and we will be sending out more information in due course. Mark your calendars with our tentative date on 21/22 May 2021. There will be games, a vendor area, and some workshops/hangouts.
- Hangouts are happening every third Thursday of a month on zoom. The hangouts are very informal and perfect of getting in a bit of painting or crafting time. You can also just hang out and chat. Members should contact us for the zoom links as these are member-only events.
- We are currently looking at organizing a game day summer – tentcon style, which means outside and with proper social distancing. No date has been set but if you have great ideas on how and where we can make this happen, please reach out.
- A Minicon is being planned for early fall and we hope we can organize a larger game day with a variety of games and some vendors. No date has been set yet and more information will be coming forward once we know more about the ease of restrictions on larger gatherings.
We hope this update brings some excitement and we look forward to seeing you all soon. If you dropped your membership due to COVID-19 please consider re-activating it, so you can participate in everything MHWA has to offer. As we are trying to organize these events, we also need volunteers to support the officers. Please reach out if you want to get involved!
